Yes, this is a real live bird...it is not a stuffed decoy.  Though it does look like one!

Ahhhh! You know I love the duckies. I raised them for years and have a family of mallards on the pond now.
Kay: I'm so glad you like the duckies, Mary. You are so lucky to be able to enjoy watching your mallards. They are very entertaining, aren't they?
I like what you have done with the colour here.

That duck clearly likes what you have done to him, Kay. Look at his smile!!! It's a look of self-satisfaction and pride. smile
Kay: He does know he's pretty, doesn't he, Ginnie? Thanks! wink

I love the sheen of his breast feathers and the droplets of water, its amazing. Lovely capture Kay. I do agree with previous comments though it would be nice with a plum or orange sauce. smile
Kay: LOL, Tracy! I must object on my friend's (the duck) behalf! But I understand why. wink
Nice portrait.
Kay: Thank you, Chantal.

If only it could speak it would say thank you. 5star performance Kay.
Kay: Thanks, Busola! I think the duck actually winked at me wink
Gorgeous colour and detail, and that little glint in the eye just finishes it off. (:o)
Kay: Thank you, Roz!
